The Chase Continental Airlines Presidential Plus credit card is no longer offered to new applicants now that United and Continental have merged. They launched the new United Mileage Plus Club Card that fills the lounge access credit card hole. But a lot of current Presidential Plus credit card holders are wondering what will happen to their existing credit cards with the new United.
Good news. Chase has confirmed the benefits won’t change, and you can keep a Presidential Plus credit card with the new United. They’ll just send you a card that says United Presidential Plus on it later this year. You can see a list of benefits at this link for existing card holders.
Here’s the verbatim of the letter they sent to card holders…note it doesn’t mention the Avis President’s Club and Hyatt Platinum benefits, but rest assured those benefits are reiterated on Chase’s website under the new United name.
United and Continental have successfully completed their merger, and now offer you the new, world-class loyalty program – United MileagePlus. Chase and United are proud to continue to provide you with unique ways to earn award mile and enjoy exclusive Cardmember benefits. All you need to do is use your Credit Card from Chase to continue earning award miles. Rest assured your miles will be credited to your MileagePlus account. As a reminder, your MileagePlus account number is your former OnePass number.
In keeping with United’s evolving brand, your Credit Card from Chase is getting a new name along with an updated design. Your Continental Airlines Presidential Plus Card will now be referred to as the United MileagePlus Presidential Plus Card on your statements and other Cardmember communications. As long as you continue to meet our credit criteria, you will receive a MileagePlus Predidential Plus Card for you and any authorized users on your account by the end of 2012. This replacementCard will have the same account number, pricing, annual fee and benefits.
In the meantime, keep using your current Card for all your purchases while enjoying the following benefits:
